Big news out of the Lion City! BDx, a carrier-neutral data center cluster sprawling across Asia, announced services from Cogent Communications will now be available in the company’s Singapore (SIN1) facility. Among the top three ranked carriers and one of the largest Tier 1 IP providers globally, Cogent Communications specializes in providing IP transit, dedicated internet access, Ethernet transport, SD-WAN and colocation services. BDx welcomes Cogent to its loaded SIN1 meet-me room to deliver enhanced services to their customers across Asia.
Boasting the highest megawatt per capita globally, Singapore is a desirable and strategic location empowering enterprises to easily access Asia-Pacific’s most rapidly emerging markets. Conversely, the increased demand for colocation space makes data center availability hard to come by for new customers. Acquired by BDx earlier this year, SIN1 is one of the only facilities available to service new customers in capacity-constrained Singapore.
The addition of Cogent as a new carrier in BDx’s SIN1 data center will allow their customers to benefit from Cogent’s extensive footprint, network capabilities and range of connectivity services, regardless of their colocation requirements. Along with offering high standards of operations and support, Cogent availability is one of the many benefits BDx provides to organizations across industries.
SIN1 houses 1,500 racks with a 6 MW power capacity within 14,400 square meters. It has been awarded an UpTime Tier 3 Design Certificate, as well as holding SS564 GreenMark Gold Plus, TVRA, ISO27001 and PCI-DSS certifications. Construction to add four floors and an additional 8 MW of capacity has also started. Upon completion, the SIN1 data center will house a total of 14 MW of capacity, making BDx one of the few data centers still able to service new customers in Singapore. The purpose-built servers within the SIN1 data center enable businesses to gain robust insights needed to power their digital transformation. The BDx 360 portal provides customers with a holistic view of their infrastructure from any device or location.
